For a third year running, BRLSQ of North America will return to Roadburn to present the Full Bleed exhibition. Housed in the new-to-Roadburn Pit Stop, Full Bleed is back – bigger and better than ever.

There will be some familiar faces in the form of Jacob Bannon, Richey Beckett, Thomas Hooper etc, but there will also be an injection of new artists such as Douwe Dijkstra and Gemma Berenguer. Plus, with live screen printing taking place over the course of the festival, genuine one-off pieces of art will be created in front of your very eyes – and be available for you to take home with you! Aaron Turner will be finding some time in between the three (!) sets he’s performing to head down to the exhibition on Saturday to sign some prints too.

The exhibition will be open Thursday April 11 – Saturday April 13: 13:00 – 19:00

Sunday April 14: 13:00 – 18:00

Thomas Hooper

Thomas was born in Hastings in East Sussex (UK). He studied drawing at the London Institute of Art and Design but subsequently moved from London to New York to pursue his objectives in art and tattooing. He went from Saved Tattoo in NYC to Rock of Ages in Austin, Texas. His style is deeply influenced by Tibetan iconography, alchemical and early scientific illustrations, traditional woodcuts and mystic cosmology. He has always been interested in exploring themes and imagery connected with death and rebirth. His attention to detail and  extraordinary precision have earned him a place among the best contemporary tattooists and artists.

Thomas says about himself: ‘I am a tattooer, an artist, a husband, and a father. My sensibilities as an artist are defined by how I may incorporate and blend these identities into my tattooing. I tattoo at Rock of Ages in Austin Texas. Today my work draws its influences from many things the sanctum of nature and natural forms, the unconscious, mathematical and geometric patterns, cosmology, and eastern religious images. I try to incorporate these ideas into intricate patterns and iconic folk symbolism using complex pointillism, repetition, and detailed line-work with the hopes of creating a vernacular that is both meditative and pure in form.

It is my belief that a tattooist should always be striving to improve his or her skill, and to be conscious of how their tattoos may relate and ultimately contribute to the surrounding world of tattooing. I am constantly exploring new ways to improve the skills and options available to me, finding new ways to develop techniques and tools beyond what is already necessary. Given that the skin is my material, the path forward for my craft to expand and improve is to find new ways to illustrate and decorate the people I am fortunate enough to tattoo.

Together with some illustrator-friends he assembles a collective called Knetterijs, by which they work together at a studio. Also they do some projects together, like making zine’s and graphic novels. Douwe get’s inspired by old comics, landscape paintings and all the things he finds in thriftshops.

Gemma Berenguer

We are excited to expand our live screen printing this year with Gemma Berenguer taking the lead. Gemma first discovered screen printing during her time earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts at university–it was love at first sight! Trapped by the art form’s versatility, Gemma experimented on many surfaces and with a range of graphic styles during her time as a student and after college, she then decided to continue her training at the Printer’s Guild. Gemma spent several years as a screen printing operator, but missed the artistic elements and process she enjoyed in her own work. As a result, Gemma started her own shop, “Monostereo” in 2008. This artists’ collective provides workshops and demonstrations at several schools, social centers and various organizations, along with commissioning works of the finest quality art prints, gig posters, LP/book covers, and limited editions on fabric, wood, etc. Gemma’s “Monostereo” is a proud member of API (American Poster Institute) and design and hand-print a broad spectrum of their own gig posters, graphic works and promotes the gig poster culture all over Europe.

Richey Beckett

Beckett uses traditional pen and ink methods to create lavishly detailed pieces of black and white illustration, which are then transformed into boldly coloured screen printed poster art. Taking influence from historic biblical, literary and natural history illustrators and engravers along with the decorative flair of Art Nouveau, he creates his own organic world which expands with each new piece.

Clients include:
Metallica, Grateful Dead, Mastodon, Pixies, Foo Fighters, Queens Of The Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails, Converge

Marald van Haasteren

Marald van Haasteren was born in Leiden, the Netherlands in 1970. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague in 1995.

Marald is best known for his collaborative work with John Dyer Baizley on the images and packaging artwork of Baroness latest album, Purple. Brought together by art and music, their longtime friendship also resulted in Desperation Burns, an exhibit of their intricate artwork for the much lauded album, and showcasing Marald’s work to a wider audience.

Being part of the DIY underground scene since the late 80s, Marald has also been making art for the likes of High on Fire, Wolfbrigade, Kylesa, Bolt Thrower, Perturbator and Revolver magazine  to name but a few. His distinctive blend of jaw-dropping craftmanship and delicate, compositional sensibility ranges from black and white ink works to full colour paintings; his favorite medium to date is color pencils on toned paper. The art is sometimes enhanced by digital media – though the basis for Marald’s stunning technical masterpieces, remains hand drawn imagery.

You can loose yourself completely within the density of Marald’s visual landscapes – one moment, he will lure you into a dark and diabolical netherworld, the next his symbology and narrative will remind you of how precious and beautiful life truly is.

Dante Torrieri

Dante Torrieri is an experienced, high-quality professional photographer, based out of the east coast in the United States. He has been featured in a large variety of magazines and print, including Rolling Stone, Decibel, Magnet, Wired, and others. He specializes in portraits, band promotional photos, and live concert photography, but is not limited to these. Dante has worked with numerous bands including Baroness, Exhorder, Tombs, Nothing, Heavy Temple, and many others.

David V. D’Andrea

David V. D’Andrea is an freelance illustrator and printmaker. He currently lives and works in Portland, Oregon where, since 2012, he has worked under the byname of Samaritan Press. David received a degree in Illustration from the California College of Arts and Crafts in 2006. Notable clients include Om, Sleep, & Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

“ D’Andrea’s illustrations seethe with sinuous, accomplished line work and intentional rough edges. He combines the draftsmanship of the 1960ʹs poster artists with a raw detailed grittiness to create an organic pen and ink style that is unmistakably his own.Through esoteric signs and symbols such as aviform in flight, sigillary calligraphy, disembodied wings, and skeletal forms, he seeks to perpetuate the avowal that is death, and in turn catharsis; to create archaic crests for modern battles.”

“D’Andrea’s work is his spiritual path.” – Al Cisneros / Om

Jondix

Born in Barcelona in the 70’s, Jondix studied architecture, but became eventually a tattooist and finally opened Seven Doors Tattoo in London. Published many books like 1000 Oriental Designs, 108 Marks, Geometry-444, Shakti-7, Existence, etc and is working on a new one about his abstract-surreal art called Estigma. He played guitar in many metal bands and did artwork for others including Yob, Electric Wizard, Grand Magus, etc.

David Cook

David M. Cook is the architect of a mischievous microcosm. Amicable and unassuming, he hardly seems the “type” to consistently and skillfully crank out Based in Los Angeles by way of Brooklyn, but originally from Louisville, Kentucky, David (who also answers to Bonethrower) uses no shortage of fine lines to design a world that is equal parts modern mysticism and memento mori—at the end of the day, it all sinks in like a psychotropic drug.

Aaron Turner

Aaron Turner is a musician and artist. Most recognized for his role as guitarist/vocalist for post-metal band Isis, he has also participated in projects such as House of Low Culture, Jodis, Old Man Gloom, etc. He has collaborated with artists such as Masami Akita, Stephen O’Malley, Tim Hecker, Justin Broadrick, Daniel Menche, James Plotkin and others. Over two decades, Turner’s appearances have ranged from basements to international festivals and museum/galley spaces. His work has been informed by a lifetime involvement with underground metal and hardcore, often materializing in highly abstracted forms utilizing processes of electro-acoustic exploration, improvisation and longform composition. In addition to his musical projects, Turner is the founder/art director of Hydra Head Records label, focused on releasing heavy and experimental music. More recently, Turner co-founded SIGE Records with partner Faith Coloccia, to publish their own works as well as that of their frequent collaborators. Current projects include Thalassa (w/William Fowler Collins), live and studio work with his band SUMAC, and continued performances/recordings with Mamiffer and Old Man Gloom.

Maarten Donders

Official artist of Roadburn 2019, Maarten uses his sketchbook and personal interests as a launching point, where every idea is equally important, and anything can ignite a spark. His goal: to create powerful, expressive images that are recognizable but breathe personality. His work is known for its surreal, heady, dreamlike but natural qualities and his drawing style has an organic flow and ranges from detailed to more expressive drawings. With a sensibility for art nouveau, psychedelic art and the subconscious, he is on a continuous search to visualize his own worlds.
